More on Swarm Intelligence: The TikTok Effect & "Trusting Science"

in LeoFinance2 months ago


So apparently bees do some kind of vibration dance to come up with Hivemind decisions (like where to seed a new home). Their decisions are surprisingly accurate, to the point of being able to outwit super computers. Perhaps we could learn a lot from biological colonies like bees and ants.

Something is stirring in humanity...

Now obviously the conspiracy theorists are going nuts as always, especially during times like this. Say what you want about Q-Anon and whatever else, but the prevalent message is clear: stop blindly trusting authority. And that's a message I can get behind pretty easily. The people in charge lie whenever it suits them, and they never hold themselves to the same standards as those who they lord over.

Trust Science! (doublespeak)

It's weird how the phrase "trust science" has been politicized by the left. Why would anyone need to trust science? Isn't the point of science is that anyone can replicate the experiments and everything should be peer reviewed and validated in a decentralized manner across the globe?

Democrats think Republicans are simply idiots (dare I say COVidiots) for not trusting science, but it goes so much deeper than that. Republicans know they're being lied to, and some of them just make up crazy shit as the answer. Democrats think because Republicans are wrong that means they are right. Dems think these issues are binary (how ironic).


You're both wrong.

It becomes clear that "Trust Science" doesn't mean "Trust Science". It means trust authority. This is obvious doublespeak. Anyone telling anyone to "Trust Science" is not running experiments themselves and validating it locally or doing their own research. They are simply believing what they are told and telling others to do the same or else they're fucking morons.



All I did was type "trust science" into Google and around 25% of the memes called people morons if they don't believe.

  • That is not constructive.
  • That is not building bridges or extending olive branches.
  • That is not changing anyone's mind.
  • It is frustration.
  • It is an echo-chamber.
  • It is propaganda.

Insulting the intelligence of the people who don't believe what you believe is a completely divisive and counter-productive activity. Yet this is an activity that is completely fostered from the top-down as acceptable behavior. Conclusion: the people in charge want everyone fighting against each other and arguing about what the truth is rather than running science experiments themselves.

This is genius and Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis.

He invented the PCR test used to diagnose Covid-19 among other things. The problem? Kary Mullis claims you can't use PCR for these kinds of tests, and that Fauci is a fraud who is more of an administrative figurehead than an actual scientist. Trust science indeed...

I still need to finish watching this, but seriously if even 10% of the shit the @corbettreport says is true, then that's fucking mind-blowing stuff. However, scroll to minute 19:00 so see actual video of Kary Mullis saying this stuff. Trust science? Hm.

There are very few molecules that you don't have at least one single one of in your body.

So when the PCR test amplifies genetic material exponentially you theoretically could get a positive result for anything, especially if the cycle count is high. IIRC each cycle doubles the material and COVID tests often do 40 cycles or something like that.

Regardless, if you don't believe that PCR tests are a valid means of detecting COVID you are a fucking moron and you should be canceled. Even though the Nobel Prize winning inventor of the device says otherwise.

To top off that shit-sandwich, everyone is running around saying a false-positive test is impossible, so anyone who tests positive clearly has the disease and they are just "asymptomatic". Seriously though?

These guys like Fauci get up there and start talking... you know he doesn't know anything... really about anything... and I'd say that to his face [looks at camera like he's ready to fight]... NOTHING! The man thinks you can take a blood sample and stick it in an electron microscope and if it's [chuckling] got a virus in their you'll know it. He doesn't understand electron microscopy, and he doesn't understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he's in. Most of those guys up there on the top are just total administrative people and they don't know anything about what's going on, on the bottom. Those guys have got an agenda...

Crazy stuff.

This is just one tiny example when digging deeper on the "trust science" debate. It clearly doesn't mean to trust and employ the scientific method; simply trust that their are scientists working on this and they have no reason to lie. Why would they lie? They wouldn't! And if you disagree you are a fucking idiot!


This poster hangs within arms reach of me when I'm lying in bed. These are all good messages, yeah? Hard to disagree with them. However, how do you define what "real news" is? Once your enemies know that you "trust women" aren't they going to use that trust against you? We see "believe in science" is up there... we already went over that...

The point is that good intentions can easily be manipulated by the sociopaths. For example, there is a history of not trusting women when they claim sexual misconduct is going on, and in addition to that, sexual misconduct and harassment are rampant in all aspects of life.

Science experiment:

Make a catfish account as an attractive woman on any dating site and see for yourself. Men are disgusting. Fun little science experiment for you. I've done it: It is horrifying and mind boggling. This is why we can't have nice things.


Cancel Culture

This is the core of the problem. This is the weapon the sociopaths use. Rather than employ forgiveness, justice, and move on from the issue after correcting it with LOVE, the exact opposite thing is done. Those who are accused are simply punished and canceled out of revenge, sometimes with very little evidence.

You don't need evidence, remember? Trust Women!

So now "Trust Women" has been doublespeak warped into:

Punish the accused without evidence.

What many don't seem to understand is that you can correct a problem without brutally inflicting damage on the person that fucked up. But oh, sweet revenge feels so good, so we justify the hate and the fishtail reaction to the offense. The vast majority of the population does not understand the difference between justice and revenge. We absolutely do not have a judicial system. We have a system of revenge.

So what is the difference between Justice and Revenge?
  • At the core of Justice is prevention, repentance, and rehabilitation
  • At the core of Revenge is inflicting damage on offenders.

It becomes quite obvious with the most cursory of glances that what we have is not justice. Recidivism rates are offensively high and rehabilitation is near impossible when employers will not hire felons. The entire system is designed to punish, not actually make the world a better place. It ironically does exactly the opposite, and most people celebrate the punishment in some of the most disgusting and hypocritical ways possible.

This hate and need to punish others, that is so clearly fostered and downright celebrated in most cultures, is nothing but a sign of weakness and counterproductivity.

As men, we are taught that anger, rage, and punishing those that wrong us is what makes us strong. False. Full stop.

Insert religious rant:

It blows my mind to know that, as an atheist, I'm a better Christian than the vast majority of Christians. I know the lore. I get the metaphors. I employ forgiveness.

Meanwhile, actual Christians think they get to do whatever they want and they just have to ask for forgiveness later and they are all good. People use going to church as upkeep on their immortal soul and use that to justify whatever shitty action they want. It is disgusting.


Back to Trust: This is a scaling issue.

The question becomes: how can we find the truth when all the data has been corrupted and those that used to be perceived as trusted sources of information have revealed time and time again that they are clearly not? This is the ultimate problem, and the solution is far from trivial.

Clearly, I believe the answer lies in cryptocurrency, self-governance, decentralization, and a big step away from legacy systems. Swarm intelligence is a big part of that. If two heads are better than one, swarm intel shows us that thousands of people working together and each providing a tiny bit of value can synergize into massive results via network-effect.

Again, this is a scaling issue. Humanity has proven time and time again as we attempt to scale up to large groups to achieve massive goals we have a tendency to fall on our faces. Bees and Ants would be disappointed and laugh in our stupid human faces if they could see us tripping over ourselves constantly. They are so much better at scaling up than we are. Pretty funny when you think about it.

Think of the powerhouses that would be created given a system of MILLIONS of people working together and able to trust one another. Now think billions. This is a possible future that we could see in our lifetimes, and should obviously strive for. Rather than leaders becoming corrupted by absolute power and siphoning all value to their small tribe due to tribalism, value can instead be distributed properly to the entire community through the ideals of the greater good.

Bottom line: when we put people in charge, the system will fail.

We need systems that govern themselves.
We need swarm solutions.


Greed is humanity's ultimate enemy.

That's really all it boils down to: greed. The people who gain power tend to consolidate that power and corrupt its purpose. The ability for humanity to solve that problem is the ultimate scaling solution.


It's easy to identify these problems, but that doesn't stop people from thinking they are so smart for having clear vision in a sea of humans being blinded by the data economy and the profitability of manipulating truth. Everything is relative. Those who are "woke" look at the people around them who aren't and place themselves on a pedestal. Oh wow, good for you! Aren't you a special snowflake!

We don't need people running around identifying problems; we need solutions. Again, I believe the answers lie in decentralization, cryptocurrency, and collective swarm intelligence from the community itself.

I've been seeing some weird things lately.

Some really... really weird things. Evolution is explosive and rapid and is triggered by explosive and rapid change. Evolve or die. Humanity is running full speed at a cliff, and if we don't grow some damn wings quick, we're about to get wrecked. The weird thing? It looks like humanity might actually be sprouting wings, and it's the damnedest thing I've ever seen.

@caitlinjohnstone sees it too...

Our ecocidal, warmongering tendencies have brought us to a point that now has us staring down the barrel of our own extinction, and that is where we are surely headed if we continue patterning along the behavioral trajectory that we have been on. Only a drastic change of patterns can change that trajectory. And we are seeing a change of patterns.

Of course that quote was from October 2019, so if you look at her more recent posts it's more like what I've been writing: Everything looks pretty fucked!

The Boot Is Coming Down Hard And Fast

Obviously the Patriot Act 2.0 is going to be rolled out ASAP under the Biden Administration, and it is not going to be pretty. Amazing how the left will continue to support this nonsense until it's way too late. They love the power they are being granted over the right. Power corrupts, once again.

jacksparrowcan do cant do.jpg

So why am I optimistic?

Various strange reasons. Crypto being a big one. But you'll notice I tagged TikTok in the title of this post. Why is that?

Well, I'm not a TikTok user, even though they are clearly my people. A social media site of 60 second videos? It's like the ADHD version of Twitter. Hilarious!

In any case I've been seeing super weird examples of Swarm Intelligence popping up on TikTok. Turns out all that doomscrolling my girlfriend was doing actually exposed me to something I was not expecting!

Sea Shanty TikTok!!!1

Yep! This is the weirdest damn thing I have ever seen, hands down. People getting together to sing pirate songs in harmony on TikTok? That is fuckin' lit, fam! LOL!

Okay, so it's not impressive that TikTok did this: It's impressive HOW it came about. This content was produced unsolicited... meaning the guy who started it didn't ask anyone to join in... people just started adding to it on their own. There are like a hundred different versions now. Very weird example of network effect.

Can you see the relation to crypto? This is an example of people doing a bunch of inefficient work just like redundant storage across decentralized ledgers. Hundreds of versions of a single song were produced. The total work-hours put in were high, much higher than the acceptable limit of paid work at a corporation, but yet this content was produced free of charge, and it was paid nothing. People just did it for fun, and the end result was impressive.

Now obviously you can't stop tyranny by getting together and singing a song (or can you!?) but I think this really shows how people can come together using network-effect and create content that was completely unpredictable and very surprising using decentralized mechanics.

But wait, there's more...

Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical

Yep, there's a Ratatouile TikTok musical.
Pretty crazy if you ask me.

What is going on here?

I don't... know...
Classic case of being bored during lockdown?

The point is that people are coming together via emergent network-effect and creating content that's a lot higher quality than any one person could do themselves... and they are basically doing it for free. Can you imagine what it would be like if these kinds of systems were monetized with crypto?

This is exactly the kinds of reasons why the establishment won't even try to stop these things from happening. When people are passionate about a project they are willing to work a lot harder for a lot less money and pump out a product that's way more valuable. Sounds like dollar signs to me. If there's one thing that the elite loves it's more money.


Expect the weirdness to continue on exponentially.

There are some seriously hard times on the horizon. Massive sweeping changes are coming as this New Normal and Great Reset chug along. How society will respond is completely unknown at this point. They are trying to keep us divided and conquered. Will they succeed, or will something completely unpredictable happen as an explosion of network-effect, disruption, and value sweep across the Internet? This earthquake is the real deal.

With great change comes fast evolution

This is not just singing songs and making musicals. Social media has already been used in places like Egypt to warn people of the location of say a hostile sniper for example. These networked-connections and unintended uses are only going to increase exponentially during the coming years. We are living through history.

The footage of the creator of the PCR test and Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis criticizing Fauci should give everyone pause. What he's saying is that when you increase the cycle threshold enough, you can find evidence of whatever you want.

I don’t think you can misuse PCR. [It is] the results; the interpretation of it. If they can find this virus in you at all – and with PCR, if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody.
It starts making you believe in the sort of Buddhist notion that everything is contained in everything else. If you can amplify one single molecule up to something you can really measure, which PCR can do, then there is just very few molecules that you don’t have at least one single one of in your body.

I think you nail it when you say that the cries of 'Trust Science' really means 'Trust Authority'. People are so entrenched and invested in their side that they cannot think clearly.

What I see on Hive and other social media platforms is that people who do present scientific data and information and thus challenge the dominant narratives are quickly labelled 'conspiracy theorists' ,'anti-science', 'quacks' ,'infestation' , etc. They are painted with a whole litany of insulting names which are thrust upon them and are 'othered' as a homogenous group that hold only ignorant views.

They are marginalized and dismissed out of hand without debate. Thus, they are deemed to be unworthy of engaging with and, no matter the merits of their arguments or of the quality of the information they present, they are completely discounted.

On certain topics there is apparently, no debate.
What could be more 'anti-science' than blindly accepting establishment orthodoxy?

As for TikTok videos as a sign of optimism... I have serious doubts. Yet, we can probably all agree that things are going to get a whole lot weirder and that tectonic changes are already taking place.

The whole charge of "anti-Science" is just the CCP recycling things they said about the Falun Gong.

I completely went on a tangent after listening to The Wellerman sea chanty and listened through the various remixes over and over again. It tickles my soul like few things before it.

I think this is marvelous analogy to where the swarm intelligence is leading us. Music colabs are merely the tip of the iceberg. We have seen nothing yet. Financial incentives to come together will make things explode exponentially.

There is so much doom and gloom out there and I myself am involved in decoding much of that dark history BUT I am absolutely convinced that the boat of humanity is steering into the right direction. We are off-course and the next few years will without a doubt bring a shadow over us we will never forget. This has been prophesized, predicted, programmed and desired by countless parties. But the fog will be clearing again and a golden shore awaits us all. We just have to make sure we don't drown on our way there and employ forgiveness.

I prefer this one: 3h mashup and it has a better sound but also includes the remix by Argules - partly. :-)

Music actually can defeat tyranny, by way of creativity!



Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I wonder if that is why all new music has been utter shit for the past 20 years?

Remember 30 years ago? Shame they murdered this guy!

I think thats exactly why popular music has been so terrible.

Yeah that's why I wrote "or can it!?!"... music is pretty weird, and can hype humans up into different thought processes and various emotional states.

I ask my friend to look at a video. She asks is the speaker a real doctor. I say he has a phd and not sure how it is relevant.

Backstory: She has a friend who is a doctor and she trusts her.

She says she needs to hear it from a medical doctor.

I say, does it matter who says something? If it's truth, you check it out and if it checks out, then it's truth.

I'm not going to say what I shared or more of the details on the conversation because it's not needed to elaborate this point.

Unspoken assumption: The idea that low level medical authority actually understands Covid-19 at a molecular level, understands the testing procedures as if they invented them themselves and has personally made the informed decision to implement these draconian measures.

No, most Western medicine is practiced under the umbrella of established authority of knowledge, which is a hierarchy. This higher level authority of knowledge is not questioned while people trust low level authorities who are actually just in a sense lackeys (at least that's all they've become after this covid fiasco).

The ones who are not lackeys or who choose to think differently are being censored.

A 'good' doctor is not one that researches and finds their own truth, a 'good' doctor is one that does what they are told and uses their low level authority to convince those in their realm it is the truth; either out of ignorance or mal-intent.

To ask people to distrust medical authority is to unravel the system of lies, it means they have to take responsibility of their own lives.

There is a great cognitive dissonance and a backlash to the truth in this instance because subconsciously the pain of resistance is weighed up in their minds with the pain of submission and a decision is made at a subconscious level to remain ignorant and blind.

However as the truth boils further to the surface it becomes harder and harder to push it down... And the well meaning community of love and light of yesteryear become the harbingers of doom. And right at the end, they see the blood on their hands and they scream...

That little nicking voice in the back of your head had a purpose.

Science takes the previously authoratative position that spirituality, religion and your wise elders once had. It does not become something to grow from, nourish yourself upon and change the world with - it becomes a cudgel to bludgeon the curmudgeon with. The curmudgeon being anyone with a shred of respect for the traditional beliefs of their ancestry.

I love the PCR Test and how it has been the lynchpin for the imprisonment of the entire planet. 99.99999999% of people do not know how it operates and how the utilization of "science" with increased amplifications of the PCR test materials, is literally what causes false positives in up to like 90% of all PCR tests taken.

the whole post is interesting and on point, but thanks for making my day with the tiktok song :)

So much this. "Science" just isn't something that can be trusted. That makes no sense. You can trust the web of researchers that were able to replicate an experiment, you can weight the probability of the results of a study being true, you could trust someone with the title "scientist", but really it's just a method to gather and analyze data

Excellent read, good sir. Thanks

Ok, so I read this because of Tik Tok. I don't use it but their algorithm is such that anything can go viral regardless of the account or influence of said account. So I've been enamored with it for hive/leo marketing. Have you searched for the bitcoin hashtag? It has legs. btw, the republicans have had "stupid" as part of their marketing plan since Reagan 2nd term. They say it is easier to get stupid people to vote for you than to get smart people to change their minds. it's cheaper too. for 2016 into midterms repubs spent outragious $$ to get the word socialist out there. Starting after Jan 20th the keyword will be deficit. It's the same shit different day.

"the republicans have had "stupid" as part of their marketing plan since Reagan 2nd term. "

"Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage," Gruber said during a 2013 speech at the University of Pennsylvania. "Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing (Obamacare) to pass."

On the topic of PCR tests:

In relation to the "trust science" argument:

It's problematic to assert that "trust science" equals "trust authority" and therefore you should distrust the arguments of scientists. That is the playbook that the peddlers of conspiracy theories and the anti-science crowd use to push their stone age line of thinking.

That doesn't mean that some political groups will not use that argument to discredit their rivals.

If a politician uses that argument we should always take it with a grain of salt but it doesn't mean that on a specific case the argument is invalid just because it is used by someone in that position. I am sure that it is some sort of logical fallacy to discredit an idea because the proponent is not trustworthy (the story of the boy that cried wolf comes to mind).

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It's also problematic to allow the sociopaths in charge to build a policy on the idea that "life is sacred" and we need to save as many lives as possible no matter what. They don't care and they are liars.

50% of the population should die.

Prove me wrong.

What is going on right now is akin to the whole "think of the children" arguments out there.
The people saying these things don't care about the children or anyone but themselves and their little tribe.
They are tapping in to the emotions of the public and manipulating opinion for personal gain.
This is nothing new: tribalism reigns supreme. This is failure to scale on a societal level.

Even more problematic when all of the absurd restrictions and mandates they impose are clearly designed to maximize death, misery and economic damage. A lot of people just think they are incredibly stupid and inept and that it is an accident that every intervention they impose has the opposite effect that it is supposed to. It seems a lot more like they know exactly what the results of their interventions will be. For example it is well known that the unemployment and suicide rates correlate closely with each other. To the point where for every percentage the unemployment rate increases there is something like a one percent increase in the suicide rate. They knew that putting millions of people out of work would cause a lot of young people to die and not save anyone's life, so that is what they did.

Yeah I think the evidence is pretty clear when COVID positive patients are allowed in to old-folks homes on purpose. They know exactly what they are doing.

Just because the democrats have an agenda it doesn't deny the fact that the republican party is littered with evangelicals who deny science as a matter of principal. I could be wrong but as far as I know behind every antiscience piece of legislation there is a republican promoting it (at least in recent history).

The following is an "old" example:

So my argument still stands...just because the democrats have other motivations it doesn't deny the fact that a good portion of the republican party is anti-science.

The republican party is anti-science as long as that view leads to exploitative profits. The democratic party is pro-science as long as that view leads to exploitative profits. There seems to be a common denominator here.

I don't disagree.

50% of the population should die.
Prove me wrong.

I can't prove wrong something that is not backed by any arguments. Proving a negative is a bitch.

Democrats have been trying to tar Republicans as "anti Science" or saying they "don't believe in science" when of course that is utter nonsense. Turns out they are just using CCP talking points they used to smear the Falun Gong. They call them "anti-Science" and say "they don't believe in science". These same people call men "women" and say that is scientific.

My comment is not constrained to the US political paradigm. I could care less about US politics since I don't live there. The point I am making is that just because one side has an agenda it doesn't mean that what they are saying is untrue. That is logic 1.0.1.

A big portion of the republican party is comprised of christian fundamentilists and the core of their beliefs is anti science. I mean you can't get more antiscience than denying that evolution is real or that the earth is older than 6000 years (to name a couple of examples).

Historically both parties have engaged in combating the discoveries of science when those ran contrary to the interests of their donors and the lobbies that they represent. When scientists determined that smoking caused cancer or that the led contant in gasoline was very bad for human health they fought tooth and nail against regulation of the industries involved.

Both parties rely on the donations of big companies that are only looking up for their interests. They are the opposite faces of the same coin. Equating one of them to the CCP is frankly naive.

What percent of the Trump voters do you think believes the earth is 6000 years old?
Funny how you thought my comment about Chinese propaganda being used elsewhere was somehow limited to the US paradigm. Nothing is more anti science than claiming that men are women and yet Republicans don't use the CCP "anti science" claim on Democrats here in the US. Clearly the CCP has a lot of sway with establishment Republicans as well.

I don't know what percentage of trump voters believe that the earth is much younger than what science has determined but I do know that a sizable portion of them are christian evangelicals (millions of them). By definition they believe in the literal truth of the Bible (a good portion of my extended family are evangelicals and they live in the US and are trump supporters).

It is through my relatives that I am aware of what goes on in that community via their facebook posts. I agree that men are men and women are women (biologically) but I also believe that everyone has the right to be addressed in whatever gender denomination they prefer and should not be discriminated or harrassed because of it. But I digress.

Have you ever considered that labeling something as originating from the CCP is nothing more than a modern variation of the "red scare" tactics used in the 1950s by politicians to discredit anyone that has a different view on the world? Since it is ingrained in the US psyche that communism is bad some politicians just need to appeal to that sentiment to sway certain portion of the population to their side even if the positions of their opponents have nothing to do with communism.

My preferred pronoun is "your majesty" if you misgender me you are a bigot.
The Soviet Union was a legitimate threat to America, communism is bad. But the Soviets were no where as near as big a threat as the CCP currently represents. Communism is the greatest evil in modern times. You know that China operates concentration camps for dissidents and ethnic minorities and harvests their organs for profit right?
Do you know that the wait time for any organ transplant in China is two weeks?
The CCP is communist in name only, when they were really communists they were too busy doing what communists do, starving, to be much of a threat to us. Since they went fascist they have the resources to achieve their goals of world domination and are well on their way. Have you not read The Art of War?

I am very aware of what the CCP is. That doesn't take away from the fact that in the USA the "old but tested" tactic of labeling their adversaries as communist (or communist puppets) is used by both political parties to score votes from their citizens.

When the democrats shout Rusia! Rusia! they are are exploting the decades long antisoviet propaganda that americans are so used to. When Trump repeated China! China! he was doing the same.

The US is ruled by an oligarchy that funds two political parties. Repeating their propaganda is just playing into their games and distracting from the fact that workers and small businesses are financial slaves of american oligarchs.

I disagree that communism is the greatest evil in modern times. Fascism is the greatest threat to humanity. Sometimes fascism wears a comunist mask and sometimes they use a nationalist or realigious doesn't matter either way.

Oh and Your Majesty has a nice ring to it...but it's not a gender denomination ¯_(ツ)_/¯

When the democrats shout Rusia! Rusia! they are are exploting the decades long antisoviet propaganda that americans are so used to. When Trump repeated China! China! he was doing the same.

As usual that is an example of the Democrats projecting what they are doing. They really did work with the chicoms to rig the election. In fact they are quite predictable like that. Indeed the establishment of both parties are owned by the Chicoms, we can see that in today's vote.
It's a gender denomination if I say it is and if you say anything different then you are a transphobic bigot.

everyone is running around saying a false-positive test is impossible

Maybe I’ve not been paying attention, but I haven’t seen anyone saying that false-positives are impossible.

All the numbers are being pushed toward panic and justifying lockdown,
and it's very clear that the elite intends to profit from attacking the middle class.

That's really all I'm going for with the conclusion.

Funnily enough, this was also said during the 1918 pandemic... some of the regs for that were pushed through in a much more shady way, too

Maybe the illuminati figured they could try again since nobody would remember after 100 years 😅

You also don't see anyone in the mass media discussing how common false positives are and absolutely no one in the MSM talking about how hospitals get paid to pad the COVID numbers.

I heart your word put togethering...

Also can we call "the elite" something else? talk about doublespeak... the elite what? Elite warmongers? greed monsters? planet killers? money hoarders? despair profiteerers? resource exploiters? cost externalizers?...

I've also used slavemasters and even The Great Satan.
Cancer is also a fun parallel definition.

ooh, i do like the great satan. sociopaths is a good one too, although I wonder about that. Certainly theyd have to be sociopaths at least but that seems like a bit of an unerestimation...

There are also a lot of people out there at the top that get pressured into messed up decisions in order to compete... it's like performance enhancing drugs in professional sports: everyone is doing it so I have to as well if I want to compete.

true, like baby's blood transfusions.

I couldn't tell which way your were going with this. You seemed to be playing the middle. For me, I'm and Environmental Engineer with a way above average knowledge of Climate Science. It drives me nuts that one side denies or ignores the science. Much of it is basic, and undisputed in science, yet Pubs think it is a scam being levied by the left to tax them. I actually had hope that they would see how wrong they were on Covid and maybe they would reconsider their anti-science attitudes, but it seems they have doubled down on that instead and as you say are Covidiots.

Post of the day mate. I rarely read entries this long but I read every word of that one. Well done.

Say what you want about Q-Anon and whatever else, but the prevalent message is clear: stop blindly trusting authority.

Except they want you to blindly trust them without knowing who they are, what they want or what the "plan" is. If this is the plan then the plan sucks.

It's weird how the phrase "trust science" has been politicized by the left. Why would anyone need to trust science? Isn't the point of science is that anyone can replicate the experiments and everything should be peer reviewed and validated in a decentralized manner across the globe?

Democrats think Republicans are simply idiots (dare I say COVidiots) for not trusting science, but it goes so much deeper than that. Republicans know they're being lied to, and some of them just make up crazy shit as the answer. Democrats think because Republicans are wrong that means they are right. Dems think these issues are binary

I thought it was weird too, until I found out that the CCP invented the label of "anti-Science" to try to smear the Falun Gong. They are doing the exact same thing here.
